Transcript duties of a Socialist administration as Morris Hillquit perceives them: Medical care of poor mothers before and after the birth of children, and, when necessary, material aid to them. This care, Mr. Hill- quit believes, could be given through the department of charities. Municipal nurseries where children of mothers who have to work could be cared for during the day. (This refers, of course, to children under kindergarten age.) Better schools. More schools. More teachers (consequently no overworked teachers). Meals to be supplied by the city to poor children who are obliged to come to school unfed. Lung centers—breathing spaces through the city for overworked men and women. (Mr. Hillquit says there are only two real parks in the city of New York—Central and Prospect parks—that dusty, dejected little squares, without vegetation, cannot be called parks.) A free beach at Coney Island. Municipal ownership of street railways, including the elevated and the subway. "A Socialist Conception of the City 9} Continuing, Morris Hillquit proceeds to give his version of a "Socialist" city administration to the interviewer of the "World." The candidate of the Socialist Party states amongst others: "The Socialist conception of the city is different from that of any other party," he said. "A Democratic candidate may make certain promises, a Republican-Fusion candidate may go him one better, but fundamentally their conception of city government is the same. It is a conception of the city as a mechanism, a thing of buildings and streets and railways rather than of people. The Socialist believes that the principal business of the city is to take care of its people. Now, where does the care of the people begin? With the care of the mothers of the new generation, with the care of the children before they are born. If I am elected Mayor, I shall undertake to provide city care of poor mothers before and after the birth of children by supplying medical attention and, when necessary, material aid to them." 14
